Print Recipe


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 cup carrots coarsely grated
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoon Chili Sauce
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 4 strips thick cut bacon if making burgers


  • In a large skillet heat oil, cook carrots and onion until tender and golden, about 5 mins.
  • Stir in garlic and cook 1 min. Set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine the turkey, parsley, breadcrumbs, chili sauce, egg
  • Add cooled onion mixture. Mix until just blended, don't overwork or burgers will be tough when cooked.
  • Form into equal sized meatballs.
  • Place meatballs on greased or foiled lined baking sheet (I spray with cooking oil)
  • Bake in preheated oven 375 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until internal temperature 165 degrees.
